A day in the life: 22.11.11

The magazines: I will never ever tire of magazines... This lot is on sale now. (Mr Tonic: "Is that my HOUSES magazine?")

The "treat": The children are loving treat nights sick right now. This might be why:

Thank you Cadbury Bubbly people. One bar will do just fine next time! And yes, Anoushka-Tonic approves.

The salad: Loosely based on Heidi Swanson's Carrot, dill & white bean salad, mine went like this:

Carrots (slowly sauteed in ghee, as per the recipe), 1 tin of cannelini beans, asparagus, chopped red onion, toasted almonds, chopped mint. Olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. And chilli flakes. And to my surprise, Mr Tonic loved it!

The mention: I did a little happy dance when I saw Jen's name in Harpers this month! Too funny..

The smoothie: Whoa! Are you ready? This one blew the tastebuds right out of my mouth yesterday: 4 tablespoons rolled oats, 1/2 - 1 cup oat milk, 1 banana, 10-15 raw unsalted almonds, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, pinch of cinnamon, ice. Chuck it all in a blender (yes, I am still LOVING my Vitamix!) and enjoy. And you will.

The Zingy Springy thank you: Huge thanks to Loni for featuring Table Tonic's Neon Lime Spot Ikat cushion (yes, the same one that was recently featured in Inside Out magazine!) on her beautiful Adore Home blog last Friday:

Mmmm... all that lime makes me want a Margherita and a trip to Bali, thanks! PS Don't forget to shop the Table Tonic 25% off storewide sale! And yes - the discount can be used on pre-orders too! Happy shopping Tonic-ettes!
